Governing Board Meeting

Tuesday, August 25, 2020 – 9:00 am

Following the Governor’s directions to reduce public gatherings and practice social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19, in-person attendance by Board members and staff will be limited. With the exception of the Governing Board chair, all other Board members will be participating remotely. Only staff that are necessary for the meeting are attending in person at the Brooksville Headquarters.

If you wish to provide input to the Governing Board, please follow these steps:

  1. If you want to provide input and watch the meeting, use the Zoom option rather than the traditional livestream. The livestream is slightly delayed so it wouldn’t be in sync with the audio. You will need to register in Zoom and receive information to connect as an attendee.

      You will be taken to a page to complete information to help the District ensure you have an opportunity to speak on the agenda item(s) for which you have questions or concerns.
    • Each registration is unique for each connection.
    • It is recommended to use the Chrome browser and download the Zoom application for optimal performance.
    • The Governing Board Chair will take a recess at the beginning of the meeting after asking if anyone from the public wishes to speak. During the recess, a staff member will take your name and the topic you wish to speak about through the Question and Answer option on Zoom. The staff member will create a blue card to be used by the Chair to call on you at the appropriate time during the meeting.
  2. A backup telephone only option is available if you have trouble connecting to the Zoom meeting. Call in toll free at 1-888-585-9008 or 657-220-3242 (toll call), then enter conference room number 346-054-201. You will also be able to hear the proceedings there. If possible, please use a landline for the best connection. Please do not use speakerphone or put your phone on hold.
